My friend reported this error to me wondering what he can do to fix it.

Quote:
Defragmentation of DRV2_VOL1 (: D) has been aborted due to inconsistencies that were detected in the file system. Please run CHKDSK or Scandisk on DRV2_VOL1 (: D) to repair these inconsistencies, then run disk defragmenter again.


It is a 3-4 week old WD 120GB hard drive. He recently re-installed Windows and this is when this problem started. I have tried searching google and M$ to no avail. Anyone here have an idea.

Has he tried running Chkdsk?

Right click on the drive icon, select properties, go to tools, select 'Check Now' under Error Checking.

Well, then I'm going to take a stab in the dark and assume that XP is formatted NTFS. My guess is the slave is an older drive and is formatted Fat32. If so, I don't think the XP defrag will work on the slave drive...At least I'm about 90% sure it won't. That would explain the "inconsistancies" in the file system that were detected.

Thanks ATNO, but my friend ran scandisk on it and now he can defrag it. Not sure if scandisk fixed an error or 100 and that is why he can defrag now but he got it fixed. Thanks to anyone who was researching this one.
